As things stand going into Matchday 24, Barca are on 60 points, the same amount as both Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid.
Recent history says that it’s going to take a total in the high 90s in order to win La Liga, so points dropped from any of those three teams is a big deal. A three- to six-point gap could prove almost insurmountable at this point in the season.
Real Sociedad lie sixth in the table. They started out the season slowly and got run out of the Champions League group stage in relatively short order.
By October, La Real hit their stride and began moving up and looking like the side that finished fourth last year. via Bleacher Report
